Panama Canal Crossing

The Panama Canal is something fascinating for me! 1914 the Panama Canal was officially inaugurated! 100 years later Panama is extending the canal and they are still using the same technology as 100 years ago! Proofs how well thought-out the plans were back than. Despite all the losses during the fight between the USA and Panama this Canal is one of worlds biggest success made by humans.

Panama is building a sister canal with only 2 locks that allows broader cargo ships to use this canal to connect from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean! Finish projected by 2016.
